As the real-world prices of rare PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds loot keep on rising, the more desperate players are becoming. We’ve already reported on the latest PUBG craze, which involves many players going AFK (away from keyboard) to grind out a currency called Battle Points. These Battle Points can then be used to purchase crates, which may contain a rare item.
Well, it looks like AFK farmers’ days are numbered, as Bluehole’s producer confirmed in an interview with PC Gamer, that it’s something the development team “will definitely be addressing.”
As for how the team will fix PUBG AFK farming, well the producer suggested that how players earn Battle Points may change, or that AFK players may be prevented “as a whole.”
